The Oklahoma Department of Public Safety lifted Thursday a 100 mile daily driving limit on Highway Patrol troopers across the state.
The limit was put in place in December in response to midyear budget cuts. DPS lifted it after the 2018 state budget became official.
"What that mile restriction did is it made us more of a reactive force. Now we can be proactive, where we can go out and we can look for these distracted drivers and, ultimately, reduce crashes, which is what our goal is," said Trooper Dwight Durant.
